Abstract:

This report documents the results of radiological surveys and environmental surveys and environmental sampling conducted during the annual Radiological Survey at the 1960 BOMARC accident site, Fort Dix, NJ. The surveys were performed by personnel from the Radiation Sciences Division, USAFOEHL, during 15-12 September 1985. The report concludes that the plutonium contamination appears to be still fixed under the reinforced concrete apron in front of the missile shelter. Little or no vertical movement of the plutonium has occurred in the soil since the accident. Significant plutonium contamination was not found outside the BOMARC site boundary. None of the off-site sampling locations exceeded the USEPAs proposed limits for transuranics in the uncontrolled environment.
